What is the "smell of summer"? Perhaps it is the scent of an ocean breeze, or the telltale smell of fresh cut grass. Or maybe, just maybe, it is the smoky, robust and flavor-packed aroma of slow-cooked pork wafting through the air! On Saturday, June9th, Christopher's Deli and Pub in Cranston is bringing all the smells and flavors of summer to you in yet another of his famous PIG ROASTS! Follow your nose as native North Carolinian and chef-extraordinaire, Chef "Rebel" brings his flair to this authentic Southern barbeque. Chef Rebel begins with his smoked 700- pound pig. Add this finger-lickin'good pulled pork to a heaping portion of baked beans, sweet potato fries, tender corn and coleslaw and you have yourself one impressive feast. Unbelievably, this whole spread is only $15.00 in advance ($20.00 at the door). Don't be the only one in Cranston left out of this event -join the crew at Christopher's Deli and Pub from 2:00 - 9:00pm on June 9th, rain or shine, for the best way to celebrate the advent of summer. Throughout the pig roast, there will also be drawings and raffles whose proceeds will benefit one of Christopher's favorite causes, the Special Olympics.
No need to wait until June 9th to indulge in some of Christopher's Deli & Pub's freshly made salads, deli sandwiches, wood grilled pizzas, or mounds of mouth-watering appetizers and daily specials. At the deli counter, you will find salads such as Julienne, Antipasto and Greek salads, as well as fresh grinders packed with slow-roasted meats. If you are headed to the beach, swing by Christopher's and stock up on these delicious grinders, chips and cold drinks for your picnic basket. You will also find dozens of appetizers, ranging in price from Bob's World Famous hand-cut fries at only $2.25 to their crispy calamari at a mere $7.50, as well as a full menu of wood grilled pizzas to chose from.
